Happy Valentine’s Day, sweethearts!
I’ve got a quick little retro cocktail recipe that is perfect for date night or just drinking alone while you curse Cupid. It’s perfectly pink and has a kick!

Shake well in a cocktail shaker with ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
That’s it! Enjoy
This is the last weekend before Halloween and you’re probably prepping for Halloween parties, or maybe you’re like me and planning what you’re going to eat and drink in front of the TV on Halloween night while you watch horror flicks in your pajamas. Either way, this is the perfect cocktail to help you get your spooky on.
Satan’s Whiskers Cocktail
1 oz gin
1 oz french vermouth
1 oz italian vermouth
1 oz orange juice
1/2 oz Grand Marnier
1/2 oz orange bitters
Put everything into a shaker with ice, shake vigorously, and strain into a glass.
Recipe from The Official Mixers Manual by Patrick Gavin Duffy, 1934.
The best Sundays for me are spent inside, binge watching TV shows in my PJs, eating things I probably shouldn’t, and making cocktails. That’s what we did today. We’ve been re-watching every episode of Mad Men before the final episodes premiere, and I’ve been dying to break in my new glasses from Baigelman Glass, so we made Attaboys and ate poptarts. I’m tipsy as I write this, because this cocktail is strong and I drank a double. ANYWAY, here’s the recipe for your own Sunday Funday pajama cocktail party.
2 parts gin
1 part dry vermouth
A splash of grenadine
Shake with ice and strain into a glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
You guys didn’t think I would leave you in 2014 without a drink recipe did you? If you want to do something other than champs, try this Remsen Cooler. It’s gin based because gin is my favorite.
This recipe is an oldie, but a goodie. It’s a mild cocktail so you can drink your way into the new year and not pass out before the ball drops.
Recipe makes one drink.
2 oz dry gin
Juice of 1 lemon
Top it off with club soda
Serve in a tall glass over ice
Happy New Year! Let’s hope 2015 is amazing.
